in a world of one color
the sound of wind.
Basho (From yama-bato)
Yasutani Roshi used to explain enlightenment as—and these are his words—“the direct awareness that you are more than this puny body or limited mind. Stated negatively, it is the realization that the universe is not external to you. Positively, it is experiencing the universe as yourself”.
Ken Wilber, The Simple Feeling of Being (via johnsparker)
